          Friendly and helpful staff, clean room with a comfy bed. Located in the centre, the sights and the baths were just a couple of minutes from it. Absolutely worth the price, I recommend it.

          I was so impressive about staff in this hostel.The owner was very polite and helpful.Hostel was very clean and the room was very spacious.We didn't have any problem with bathroom.Kitchen is perfect you can do there every meal.

          Only neighbours were very resctrict but we didn't have VERY big problems with them.

          The staff were always really helpful , excellent location. There's everything you need here, and the rooms are really good. All in all a brilliant hostel!

          * The hostel staff is very friendly. The first day, upon arrival, they told us about what to visit in Budapest. And the last day, they phoned for us to book a taxi to go to the airport. They really want to help you. * The hostel is in the centre of the city. * It is very cheap. * The hostel is near a metro station, and not far from a supermarket. Some people commented about noise. I can't comment for the other room, but in our case, we didn't have problem with this. (Our window was on Magyar utca.)

          Very nice Hostel staff and very nice location (in the very center of Budapest). We were in Budapest for two days and managed to see all the sights thanks to clear explanations given by Hostel's stuff.

          The staff were lovely, really eager to help with ideas of places to visit and even happy to call the local spas to make bookings.

          As it's just of a major road I did find the traffic noise was quite loud.

          I love this Hostel very much!!! everything is good, nice, clear and comfortable. The hostel receptionist is very friendly, nice and she told us all about Budapest, a lot of helpfully informations where we should visit, eat or care about. Wifi are free in the floor but not so strong in room but our room near the wifi router so we are have also wifi in room. The room has no air conditioner but there are fan to use. I was there at Juli, outdoor was very hot but in hostel not so hot, with a fan we find it´s ok. The location is perfect, nearly center, metro, tram, and supermarket. only 2-5 mins by walk to everything.

          The only minus point is the bathroom. The hostel has 2 apartments near each other and there are 3 bathrooms. Our bathroom is very bad with the hot and cold water. It is always switch between hot and cold water while using. But only one bathroom has this problem. You can use the other bathroom, which is better and has no problem.

          Awesome relaxed hostel with really nice and affordable rooms. Excellent staff who are really friendly and helpful. The location is perfect and the price is unbeatable!

          8.2

          People who run the hostel are extremely kind and helpful. The location is also great. Our room was very spacious and spotless clean. Well working WiFi is also a plus.

          Gaia Hostel is located in two neighbouring flats. Our room was in the recently opened part, which looks nothing like pictures we could see on hostel's profile - it's rather socialisic vintage style. The biggest disadvantage of the hostel was the regulation of water temperature in the shower - all of a sudden it was turning from ice cold to hot and other way round, which was annoying.

          Hostel staff was very friendly and they gave us all explanations about Budapest.

          It was a little bit noizy outside, but it's not hostel's faut

          Basic hostel but it is fully worth its price. Helpful staff, perfect location, quiet place (not so many people there, but that's perfect if you desire to rest when you are in the hostel). Fair mattress, blinds at the windows, good for sleeping in the morning!

          In the double bed room you can hear some noise due to traffic of the road

          Location is very good as well the main two stuff working their (Marta and David) are very helpful and friendly.

          The hostel located at very busy part of the city center area..so I think as nature of the Budapest people live in this area they need to use many keys to open many doors to reach their homes! That was happened with us ..we had 4 keys to open different 5 doors including our room!
